    I take it you're on e90post.com




    Which is why you pay more for a used e30 M3 than a used e36 M3 or a used e46 M3 ... and not by small margins. It's getting to the point where used e9X M3's are not that much more than a used e30 M3's.
    The e30 M3 is one of those cars where if you can find it for sale, and the person selling it doesn't realize that it has a cult following, BUY IT!!!

    Sick car. Don't make em like they used to...

    Absolutely.

    I'm not one for german cars (while i'm german myself), but I'd take a good old e30 m3 over any new audi, mercedes, vw, opel or whatever.

    Same with the Scrirocco, i'd rather take a 84' Scirocco than the new one...

    That is poetry! I know english isn't your first language and I don't mean any offence at all, but sometimes the loose translations come off so poetic. :)

    Dunno if i'd call that a clown car.... but i really hate the stupid grin Mazda gave their newer cars. I know i've probably said that before.... but it just looks even more odd on a smaller car. haha.

    Not a bad little car though.

    Quite a cool little car actually, i quite like Mazda's, never owned one though. (yet)

    Not a car, but another fitness toy for me ...(not my pic, but identical setup except i splashed out on some expensive race wheels/tyres..who knew you could spend so much on bicycles eh? got 43m/h out of it though on it's test run yesterday, quite a sensation on a bicycle in lycra pants:p

    and i only have the one bottle cage..

    Thanks..only first image is opened in Photoshop and the raw settings were altered but the last 3 are straight from the camera...it really is that red...I call it a clown car as I don't take myself too seriously in it...speaking of serious...that bike looks much more serious than my car...quite nice.

    lillelj: My mom actually has a similar Cannondale road bike. I'm actually trying to sell my Cannondale F7 mountain bike due to the fact that i rarely ever ride it (had it for a year, only put about 18 miles on it), and because i'm really getting into Stand Up Paddling.

    Yes H stock, my 3 was HS and even though this 2 will hold a little better, I think the lack of HP may keep it from winning with the 3s. The 17th will be my first autox in the 2 as bone stock then after I drive it a few times and learn her tendancies then Ill grab some toyo r1r's and max out the Hstock mods...sway bar may do more harm than good in the front...we shall see.

    Power's pretty unimportant anyhow. Ask the hondas in ST
    What shocks do they make for those?

    Remember that a free sway bar means you can remove or reduce.
